Abel Tasman to Greymouth – day29

Leaving Abel Tasman we spent a day going south, all the way to Greymouth. Now, this might seam like only a short ditance, but as driving on New Zealands south island takes a bit longer for everyone, this is particularly true for a campervan.

Also I might need to add, that the scenery is really beautiful and quite diverse. But you’ll see that for yourself..

Our very first stop that day (when you dedicate your day to driving you have to at least try and have a few stops) was at New Zealands longest Swingbride.
To give you an overview of the bridge:


I know what you think! Doesn’t look that impressive. And to be honest- it didn’t feel like this should be the longest one. But apart from that minor flaw, it was really nice. We had a bit of a wobbely walk across the bridge, admiring the view onto yet another beatifully coloured stream.



We did a bit of a walk on the other side, which was nice and shady (which again was good, as the sun was really buring)


and I even ziplined back onto the other side. (Ok- no huge thrills there, but it was still fun!)


Our next bigger stop was at Cape Foulwind. And again I know what you are thinking- I also was wondering about that name. Luckily, the air was neither ill-perfumed nor otherwise smelly, but was as fresh as it is suppeded to be by the sea. To be quite honest- I still don’t know where that name is coming from. And I don’t think I really want to know…
To describe Cape Foulwind… well… I’ll leave it to the pictures.




One of the nice things here, was a seal colony, which you could see without paying any fees. (Doesn’t happen alot around here…)
On being on one of the viewing areas, it was a bit like “finding wally”, only you were trying to find the moving rocks:

However, one you found them, they were amazing! And they were looking like they were enjoying themselfes!




The third bigger stop that day was to famous pancake rocks. Again, one thing that didn’t require an entrace fee. We found we weren’t there at an ideal time as the tide was low (when it comes in the water is supposed to be really splashing around a lot, but we didn’t see that) and the sun was mostly shining into our faces (instead of coming from behind). We did, however, manage to do a few good shots:




By the way- this is supposed to be mermaids hair:

To end the day, we found ourselfes a nice campground by the sea, which gave the oppotunity to have this view to the end of our very sunny sunday. What an end to a great day!


Any just as I don’t want to hold back on the odd picture we shot on the odd lookout along the way, here some more:
